Recent GEICO Car Insurance Questions and Answers

What is your best advice to buy auto insurance for my 18-year-old who is buying a used car which will be paid off?

The bad news is that car insurance for an 18-year-old on their own separate policy is incredibly expensive — over $3,400 more than the national average. The good news? Typically, we see that combining insurance by adding your kid to your policy is the best route.

My son got a DUI, I will be selling the vehicle & removing him from my Geico policy. Do I need to report it to Geico?

If you choose to repair the damage to your son's car using your insurance, you will need to file a claim and tell your insurer what happened. The claim will impact your rates, but removing your son will not impact your rates as much as leaving him on there — because he has a DUI on his record, that would increase rates in addition to the accident. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Can I get accident forgiveness after an accident?

I'm sorry but you will not be able to have an accident forgiven and removed from your record. Depending on the insurance company, they have specific rules about accident forgiveness — generally, you need to be accident-free for a few years before an accident is forgiven.

Does State Farm match auto insurance quotes with other companies?

In truth, no. Car insurance companies determine their rates based on their previous years' filings (loss to revenue ratio) in addition to other factors.
